OK, not Great

Some of the reviews I read before I booked said "great location" - which it is if all you want to see is the Olympic Statium. It's a big distance from downtown or Old Montreal and even the Metro is a hike if you are a Senior Citizen or disabled. Cabs are expensive. The Gray Line bus wouldn't pick us up or drop us off for a day trip to Quebec because it is so far from downtown. Service in the hotel was excellent - really nice people. The Reception area and rooms were spotless, the corridors less so, especially around the elevator. The food in the restaurant was not very good, but we made do with bar food which was reasonable and very tasty. We didn't use the pools, but the outside one looked OK. In short, this is probably equivalent to a three star hotel but not a four.

Not great, not terrible. Free parking!

Good value. Clean quiet room. Outdoor pool great, indoor pool small and very odd color. Free parking and metro about 10 min walk. Approx 5 stops away from city center.

Excellent hotel

This hotel is amazing! We loved the location and the convenience to the subway. The hotel desk clerks were very accommodating and went out of their way to help us when we asked anything. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The common areas were well kept and very fancy. The outdoor pool was very nice and warm!! The lifeguard was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay there again.

great location, friendly staff

The front desk staff was very friendly. We got to the hotel a little early, and attempted to checkin two hours before the standard time, since that wasn't possible, they offered to provide us with free internet access. We then took a 5 minute drive to the downtown shops & street vendors, to do a little shopping and eat. The food tasted great.

My review of Hotel Auberge Universel Montreal

The room was a pleasant surprise. My wife kept asking me if I was sure that I only paid what I told her. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was great. Just outside of downtown. Free parking at the hotel was a plus. Walking distance from the Olympic Park and Botanical Gardens. Nice restaurant!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want to be part of the city, buy a 3 day pass to the museums and metro at the front desk. It's good for 3 days and for $50.00 you can travel and have free access to all the museums and most of the attractions. It's great fun!

Lovely!

Our stay at the Auberge Universal completely exceeding our expectations, and made our visit to Montreal that much more satisfying. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, I mean they were absolutely great. They advised us on how to get around, offered a shuttle to the metro, which by the way is within walking distance, which was a convenient route we also took. The room was clean and comfortable. Parking was free!!
